Kyle Sinckler: I accept the outcome of the hearing and wanted to go on record to say I am sorry that I have let my team mates down, but more importantly I feel terrible that anyone would think I would deliberately gouge an opponent. That was never my intention it was a genuine mistake and an act of recklessness on my part."
That's exactly how I see it. There's no doubt from the pictures fingers were near eyes - so guilty of the offence. Because intention doesn't enter into it, you can be guilty of the offence and innocent of intention (gouging) at the same time. I totally believe that's what happened.

Thanks DOK , like you I don't think there was any intention to gouge , ( mainly because he had every opportunity to do that if he had wanted to ), but even Club players know that you keep your hands away from faces in rucks and mauls,and you would have thought especially after the Marler /Haskell debacle that it would be apparent that Scrum caps are best avoided.
